“Whatever inspiration is, it’s born from a continuous ‘I don’t know”
– Wislawa Szymborska-
Inspiration, spiritual, creativity state of mind, impulse, vision, spark, fire, passion, genius … in the dictionary I found 163 synonyms of the word “inspiration” Is it necessary to create? When it comes and how? Well…I’m going to tell you a little bit about it.
I get many private messages with questions about how my daily work looks like. I’ m very happy, that you are interested in the details of my creations. Thank you for these questions.
You’ve asked me can I plan my work or I have to wait for a flow? Where I get my inspirations? What do I feel when I paint? If I like listen to the music or prefer a silence? etc.. Let’s start with the flow.
In fact, it is impossible to plan it. You just have to trust yourself and believe, that everything will come to you at the right time and right moment (I’m using this rules also in life). When I paint, I turn off my mind and I just trust to my feelings and intuition – I think this is the most important thing. Pablo Picasso said about intuition, that it is like having a carrier pigeon with a message, landing on your balcony – “The important thing is knowing that the pigeon has arrived, you don’t have to unroll the message and read it.”
Sometimes I need music, sometimes not, it depends on what I paint. When I feel quieter, I use small brushes and I create delicate elements – like my golden birds, flowers – then I listen mostly meditation or yoga music. Also some chillout, smooth jazz, R’n’B. When I need to use big brushes and paint knives to create some abstraction – I like to listen to more energetic music. Usually, I choose soundtracks from my favorite movies. I love music from Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, and Harold Faltermeyer.
Paintings, feelings, energy
Finally, the question is – how do I feel (or what I feel) when I paint? Am I happy with my artworks? Well… Because my paintings are very different and I use many techniques, I try to look at every artwork in a different way. Some paintings I would like to paint again, some of them I miss. One thing is for sure – inside every my artwork you can find a lot of good energy. During creation, I always have a positive state of mind. I care about it, this is very important for me. I feel high vibration and harmony with myself, and with my life. I want to share this energy with you. So far, I think my art is being received in this way, which motivates me to continue acting this way.
The biggest reward
I’m very happy when I get messages that I inspired you to some reflections, to make some changes in your life or to make new goals or back to the old ones. This is the greatest reward for me! Thank you that you are with me!
I am a painter who loves to travel, so I decided to connect these two passions and this is how The Art &Travel project has started in 2017 – if you want to support my project click here to read more.
